It comes as a surprise to most non-Japanese but the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage in Japan is not sake but beer. Especially in izakaya, the small bar-restaurants where the Japanese usually get together after work, or at events like cherry blossom picnics or summer fireworks and festivals, the first (and often the last) thing the average Japanese will drink is a nice, frothy beer. The Kameyama Draft Beer Candle is an incredibly realistic copy of just such a beverage.
Kameyama has been making candles for almost a hundred years, so they know how to work the material to get the exact effect they want. The froth and bubbles are there and the glass is a real beer jug, making the Kameyama Draft Beer Candle look almost exactly like a real, freshly poured beer - just a little smaller. The unscented candle burns for about 20 hours, though, which is plenty of time to enjoy several actual beers.
The Kameyama Draft Beer Candle features:
- Dimensions: 50 x 72 mm (1.9 x 2.8")
- Weight: 190 g (6.7 oz)
- Burning time: approx. 20 hours
- Materials: paraffin, glass
